Tsipras announces snap election in Greece

Greece's Prime Minister Tsipras has announced for the country to an early election. Reason for the poor performance of his party Syriza in the European elections. Now, the Greeks could choose already in June.

must frantic deliberations in the Syriza party Headquarters have been. Late on the night stand: Alexis Tsipras, the party's leader and head of government, want to clear the consequences drawn from the disappointing outcome of the European elections. Only about 24 percent of the voters voted for his party in government, Syriza - a good nine percentage points distance from the winner of the European elections in Greece the conservative Nea Demokratia.

Determined, and rolled up their shirt Tsipras spoke sleeves then in a state television: "Directly after the second round of local elections on may 2. June, I'm going to ask the President of the Republic, new parliamentary elections to declare. Then supposed to meet at the end of the Greek people alone make the final decision."

Parliament elections not only in October, but probably in a few weeks. By the end of last week, the Greek Prime Minister had repeatedly stressed that he plans to perform in spite of poor survey values, the European choice alone to be seen, and lay with parliamentary elections at the beginning of October, the end of the current parliamentary term. That it comes now, says the leader of the conservative opposition party, new Democracy, Kyriakos Mitsotakis. He had referred to the European elections in the past few weeks as a major test of choice.

Kyriakos Mitsotakis, had described the European elections as a test of choice.

leader of the opposition, Mitsotakis demanded resignation of Tsipras

Mitsotakis said according to the distinct extrapolations: "The Prime Minister must take responsibility. He must, for the sake of our country back, and as soon as possible, to hold new elections. Ultimately, this is the only clear solution."

As the earliest possible date for new parliamentary elections in Greece, the last Sunday is called in June. Greece is now experiencing a further intensive campaign, with similar content, such as in the last European election campaign. As before, the country is struggling with high unemployment. Many young Greeks see little prospects for a predictable life in their home country.
